Ink Block Development Approved
The Boston Redevelopment Authority announced the approval on Twitter Tuesday night.
The Boston Redevelopment Authority approved the $200 million Ink Block proposal, clearing the way for the massive redevelopment of the former Boston Herald site.
The plan, presented to the authority by National Development, calls for 471 housing units at 300 Harrison Ave.. The mixed-use plan also calls for a grocery store, retail space and restaurants on the 6.22-acre lot.
Speculation has been rampant during the planning process. According to the Boston Globe, Wegman’s supermarket head Danny Wegman told the Boston Chamber of Commerce he wanted to open locations within the city. That lead to talk of a Wegman’s at the Ink Block.
